obama during this debate and loses his cool. that's just who the guy is, i think. susan, did governor chris christie think he was helping mitt romney by saying that the debate would just be turning this race upside down? what do you think? >> i think chris christie was just being chris christie. while you're correct, a lot of people were dampening expectations, chris said what a lot of people are hoping and thinking. mitt romney delivers a vision with some specifics that people can grab on to and can turn this race around. the fact is things flip-flopped very, very quickly in the last two or three weeks. they can go back the other way. only if romney performs well. >> chris kofinis, do you believe that romney can turn this around as many months as he's had, one misstep after another, and by a wide margin, americans think president obama is going to win this debate and has the upper hand. what about expectations and what about the possibility of romney turning this around? what do you think? >> well, that's clearly their strategy. you have to love governor christie for raising expectat

weeks for president obama and governor romney? >> well, president obama's got a few things that can go wrong. some of them are political in terms of foreign policy. economically his biggest issue is if something goes wrong between israel or iran ratchets it up, oil prices go up, that always makes people feel very bad about the economy even if it's tied to something specific. there are two jobs reports to come out. one next friday and one five days before the election. those could indicate something the president doesn't like. here's the thing, bottom line right now the economy is feeling good. as you know it's still polling as the number one election issue. if it keeps on track, the republicans are going to have to watch their messaging about how this is a bad economy because many americans are not actually feeling it's worse than it was four years ago. >> and early october when jobs numbers, unemployment rate and also in early november before the election, the second one, still got those two jobs reports awaiting all of us. thanks, ali, very much. a severe breach of royal protocol for
-to-head debates in a general election format. that's been president obama. governor romney hasn't. >> reporter: during the primaries romney demonstrated he can stumble. as he did trying to bet rick perry big money at one debate. >> rick, i'll tell you what, $10,000? $10,000 bet? >> reporter: but romney is no debate lightweight here taking down newt gingrich's idea for a moon colony in florida. >> if i had a business executive come to me and say they wanted to spend a few hundred billion dollars to put a colony on the moon, i'd say you're fired. >> reporter: while romney stays behind closed doors, he's fine tuning his message softening his position on immigration. allowing the children of undocumented workers to stay in the country until immigration reform is passed. he's also out with a tough new ad linking president obama to former house speaker nancy pelosi. >> who will raise taxes on the middle class? barack obama and the liberals already have. >> reporter: fresh ammunition for tomorrow night's debate at an event earlier today in charlotte, north carolina, wolf, biden said how can the romne
